i L,.rJIE THINKS TRIS 1 j; GOOD AT FIRST BASE lf(-'nd Manager's Legs Go VVNj Would Do Well at I ' OfieMnitial Sack. Connie Mack has a feeling that Trls Speaker will end up his baseball career as a flrst-sacker. When he read that Guisto would Start the season and Bower would succeed suc-ceed him In case the Callfornlan failed to come up to expectations, Mack remarked re-marked : "Even If Guisto and Bower full to deliver, Speaker wouldn't have to worry. Have you ever watched Speak-- Speak-- er playing the infield? Well, he puts a lot of time around first base, and '". plays it very capably. "Playing center field calls for much leg work. If Speaker finds his lower . limbs are bothering him, I can see no reason why he couldn't shift to first base. He Is a wonder on ground halls, ' Is a left-hander, has a fine arm and Is a sure catch. Speaker has every asset of a star flrst-sacker and It wouldn't surprise me If he rounded out his career ca-reer at that position." j There is much logic to Mack's obser- ; vatlons about Speaker. For years the Cleveland manager has practiced a great deal at first base. He Is right now capable of playing the bng.. With a bit of experience he could more than hold his own. It Is possible that Speaker may be ' the ace In the hole for that Job In case ' bis prospects slip up on him. nowever, Speaker feels that Guisto will deliver and that In Brower he has an equally capable substitute.
